Notes & Reviews:
Reissued for the Chandos "Opera in English" series is this classic 1967 performance from the Bath Festival of "The Abduction from the Seraglio" conducted by Yehudi Menuhin, who seldom conducted any operas or recorded them. The cast features the legendary Swedish tenor Nicolai Gedda and American coloratura soprano Mattiwilda Dobbs.
Menuhin's set of The Abduction from the Seraglio in English makes the performance sparkle from first to last, favouring brisk, well-lifted Allegros, so that the fun of the piece comes over vividly...[the recording] is as full and vivid as if it was recorded yesterday, the sound-stage cleanly and atmospherically focused.
